ACHR-90 vehicles were manufactured and serviced by VOP CZ Nový Jičín until 2019. EXCALIBUR ARMY won a contract for comprehensive repairs of this anti-chemical equipment of the Army of the Czech Republic within a public tender in 2018, when it offered the Ministry of Defense more favorable conditions and price. EXCALIBUR ARMY is a traditional partner of the Czech Armed Forces, for a long time, for example, it provides service for the fleet of Tatra Tactic vehicles. The framework contract for repairs and maintenance of anti-chemical vehicles is worth CZK 16 million, including VAT, while all ordered work must be completed by the end of this year.

The contract includes the performance of defects in equipment and routine repairs, including legal revisions, inspection and calibration of chemical equipment and routine repairs of spare parts for this equipment. Specifically, it applies to ACHR-90 CO and ACHR-90 decontamination vehicles, of which the Army is equiped with 40 pieces, as well as decontamination lines, MDA decontamination vehicles and various subsystems, units, power plants and other equipment.
